Tea 101: How To Make Loose Leaf Iced Tea

Everyone has made iced tea before, but lots of folks haven't done it with loose leaf tea, and it stops them in their tracks. Relax, it's easy and fast.

How to Quickly and Safely Brew 1/2 Gallon of Great Loose Leaf Iced Tea:

1. Heat one quart of filtered water to the temperature indicated in the brewing instructions.
2. Pour it over the amount of tea you would use to make about 4-5 cups of hot tea and brew as directed.
3. If you add sugar, do it now and stir well.
4. Fill a 1/2 gallon pitcher half way with ice.
5. Pour the brewed tea into the pitcher through a strainer to catch the leaves, or remove the infuser. Stir until well chilled and the ice stops melting. Add cold water or more ice to make 1/2 gallon.
6. It's ready to drink! Enjoy! To make a gallon, just double the amount of boiled water and tea.
